    Wow its Evo week... Killed a 2009 EVO !!

    Well my good fortune struck again. Was pumping gas and up pulls an evo on the other side of the pump. We chat a bit and he says lets give it a go. I said sure so we rolled out and when we hit the strech in 2nd gear i easily rolled by him through to 4th.

    Boy was he pissed when I asked him his monthly payment amount. He paid over $50k canadian for the sucker. He asked me... and I grudgingly told him that i bought it on my credit card because it was so cheap ($5k). Great car really. I actually LOVE the looks of an EVo but man... it's just fail for $50k.

    Nice kill. I, however, would not pay $40k US for a 4 door lookin' econobox. Hell, I don't really like 4 door anything, unless it's a Jeep or similar. And you found a Z for $5k? What a steal!

    The whole point is that they can be used as a DD aswell. 4 doors, good in snow thanks to AWD, they can do alot more than just be fast. But of course its hard to have both fast and usuable and keep it cheap.

    yup it's pretty crazy considering our dollar is at par. but you have to segregate the markets to protect them form each other.

    Yup bought it for 5k. I have to agree the evo is a good looking car but does look like an econobox. I can't get over the fact that its 50k + and still only has 300 hp. AWD? please guys dont ever try to feed me that shit in my posts. I drive through the snow all year round and put snows on my z this past winter. I drove it slammed on sportlines and this thing plows through snow easier than any of my parents family cars I used to drive in the winter. It's a pretty archaic interior with semi useless rear seats but for $5k the Evo can kiss my a$$. so can any import.

    Unless you are on ice, the people that complain they can't drive in snow are pusses and shouldn't be on the road in the first place. I would image you'd watch for the other idiots rather than yourself, and by now, living in Canada, you've developed a decent amount of skill to keep the rear end in check.

    Watching for others is always key. And Snow never taught me how to keep my rear end in check. My vette did during the summers !!
